    I worked at Tech Data full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are great and the opportunity was amazing. I was able to learn so much in the 4.5 years I was there and they are the reason where I am today.

    Cons

    The pay was way too low for the work we were required to do. I felt a little under appreciated because of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership was great, so keep on doing what you are doing. Just maybe try to pay better.

    I worked at Tech Data full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are many great people and teams to join. Most people work very hard to do the right thing. It is a great place to learn and then find a real job elsewhere or if you are looking to retire. TD university trains you for your next big opportunity. You most likely will not get fired as long as you are not in mid management or higher. If you are in the top 10 -CEO-CFO-CIO, SR VP, etc. you will have a job as long as you want it as it is still a good old boys environment. There are many people who make it to 20 years.

    Cons

    upper management has no desire to allow people to grow effectively and force people to either leave the company or go to another group within Tech Data to get a better position. The philosophy seems to be that 5 entry level people are better than one experienced person. Extremely low pay for the amount of work and knowledge experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transparency. Don't make decisions in a vacuum. Pay people what they are worth anf eliminate about 20% of your accountants as they are an expense.

    I worked at Tech Data

    Pros

    Lot of flexibility and decisions are taken quickly. Flat hierarchy in the organization and highly dedicated people who are working hard.

    Cons

    Despite good quarter results no increase of salary. Communication to employees is weak and too much focus on short term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Earlier communication to the employees will help.

    Pros

    Looks of free stuff from vendors, lots of good people there still.

    Cons

    Management needs to actually listen to employees for a change. Low pay for a lot of hard work. Hard to grow a career here anymore. Stop bringing in cheap labor for SSR's and invest in your people, they would stop leaving.
